Can I withdraw PPF from any SBI branch?  Do you want to withdraw PPF without visiting the home branch where you opened your PPF account? Have you moved from that city? 

Lot of members have sent my enquiries as to how to withdraw PPF from other SBI branch. In this post, I will share details about PPF withdrawal from any branch without visiting the base or home branch.

Step by step guide for PPF withdrawl

  1. Download Form C for PPF withdrawal  –   ppf-withdrawal-form-c

  1. Ask the branch staff if they will be forwarding the ppf withdrawal form and documents to the base/ home branch. If they can do it, please get an acknowledgement for your record.

    • Hi It is unfortunate that SBI is not allowing you to withdraw. Once your 15 years is completed, you should be able to withdraw full amount. Or you may choose to continue for another 5 years.
